Want to Hijack an Enemy or Surveillance Drone? Researcher Develops Hardware that can do Just That


Now you can hijack nearly any surveillance drone mid-flight just by using a tiny gadget.

Security researcher Jonathan Andersson has devised a small hardware, dubbed Icarus, that can hijack a variety of popular drones mid-flight, allowing attackers to lock the owner out and give them complete control over the device.

Andersson, who is the manager of Trend Micro’s TippingPoint DVLab division, demonstrated.

How useful would this be in the future of drone warfare, or drone surveillance.
